Here's the deal. I worked down hard an dirty for accessable voting and the 
Auto Mark when no one else was around and didn't even care. In fact it is in 
the public record and in numerous press accounts.

Bottom line s after millions were spent for auto mark and other 
accessability standards if my polling place isn't accessable I will simply 
sue the buggers.
And on that issue I do have lawyers.

We don't have to re-invent the wheel here folks.
It is already established case law.
